Finding Compatibility factors vs. making a prediction of Marriage

Navamsha

Varga * divisional charts show the results of any undertaking in life. Varga charts do not determine the course of prediction. Varga charts serve as supplementary assessments that can be used to confirm predictions. Varga charts can also be used to develop a more detailed narrative of the relationship in question.

Navamsha (9th-divisional, 9th-harmonic, D-9) shows the "fruits of Dharma."

Presuming an accurate birth time, navamsha (D-9) must be consulted side-by-side with radix (D-1) chart, to evaluate one's "dormant" traits that will be brought out only through interactions with intimate partners. (The intimate partner for those under celibate vows becomes the ishtadevata.)

Accurate predictions require coordinated action between one 's material life (D-1) and their psycho-spiritual life (D-9) .

  • Sibling relationships , look closely radix bhava-3 and bhratrupathi-3 and Mangala-Budha, then examine the D-3 lagna and role of radix bhratrupathi-3 within the dreshkhamsha [drekkana] - D-3.

  • Parental relationships , look closely radix bhava-4 (childhood home, parents as a unit) and bandesha-4 and Surya-Chandra, then examine the D-12 lagna and role of radix bandesha-4 within the dwadazamamza-10 - D-12.

  • Relationships with one's children , look closely radix bhava-5/9 (children/grandchildren) and L-5/9 and Brihaspati, then examine the D-7 lagna and role of radix L-5/9 within the saptamsha- D-7.

  • marriage relationships , look closely radix bhava-7 and the ruler of bhava-7 and Zukra (male's partner) and Guru (female's partner), then examine the D-9 lagna (self), D-9 seventh rashi (partner) and all of the drishti and angles within the D-9.

Dr. Phil on the "Soulmate" concept:

Dr. Phil interview re: Soulmates - Ladies' Home Journal magazine , Jan. 2006


Q:

  • Many people say that when it comes to marriage, they're seeking nothing less than a soul mate. Is that asking too much?

Dr. Phil:

"What's a soul mate? It's just a term somebody made up, and with it comes some pretty mystical expectations.

I've long believed that if you're looking for that perfect partner, you're making a big mistake.

  • If you can find an 80 percent fit and hope that you'll grow together on the other 20 percent, you'll find happiness a lot quicker.

  • You wait for a 100 percent partner and you're going to be looking a long time, maybe forever .

But if you're okay on The core issues -- children, careers, division of labor, religion, handling in-laws -- then you jump in and handle the other things as they come along."

Marriage relationships are pre-arranged

All of these core life relationships are pre-arranged on the astral plane, far in advance of the participants taking birth on the earth plane.

These core relationships are established through patterns of matching energy whereby the karmic programming (subconscious expectations) of one partner creates a match with the same projections of the other partner.

  • Marriage relationships create the structure for the most important and demanding spiritual work in this lifetime. That is why the marriage varga is also considered a deeply spiritual ninth harmonic .

  • Below the gross material level, marriage relationships are extremely complex and subtle. As most long-married couples will confirm, after the initial sexual enthusiasm has burned off, couples become so psychically merged that they do not even really see"each other on the material plane.

It is easy to be lulled into a comfortable pattern of mutually satisfied expectations, raising children and satisfying parents' need for social respect. When the mutual expectations are easy and positive in this benefic-ruled style, the couple will have no motivation to seek astrological advice!

  • The marriage relationship in this case may be entirely superficial (a time off incarnation!) but if the marriage is relatively free of conflict, look to the navamsha for benefic effects.

D-9 shows the spiritual opportunity in marriage

Marriage provides the opportunity - for those who can grasp it - to observe oneself in the process of projecting one's own internally held subconscious imagery upon the surface of another person.

One's spouse, whose response patterns are represented in the mirror of the navamsha, is rarely at fault in a marriage conflict. Rather, one's own negative expectations can literally force negative results from an inherently neutral situation.

The intelligent person responds to marriage conflict by looking closely at one's own navamsha, in order to determine which expectations one is projecting.

Then that intelligent person takes steps to bring these ancient, karmic conflicts (often ported directly from one's own parents) into the light of day, and negotiate a compassionate solution.

D-9 marriage view vs D-1 marriage view

Basic material results of marriage, such as accumulation of joint monies (bhava-8) production of children (bhava-5) or conditions of the dwelling bhava (bhava-4), can be seen through the D-1 radix.

  • However the essential psychological dynamic between the partners, which is caused by (largely subconscious) expectations and reactions from childhood and parallel lives , habits of repeating the dynamic of one's own parents' marriage, and other embedded psycho-spiritual imagery

  • The Jyotishi's time spent analyzing one 's navamsha will be repaid many times over.

Profiling marriage compatibility (not just timing) through radix-navamsha links:

The items should match to secure a committed marriage (not effortless, but committed!):

  • your navamsha and the partner's radix

  • The partner's navamsha and your radix

  • your navamsha and the partner's navamsha

  • Moon linkage plays a major role

D-1-to-D-9 links show the issues on which you two partners are spiritually working together. Traits which are dormant or subordinate in partner-1 will be alive or dominant in partner-2. Thus each partner mirrors the other's arising consciousness, and facilitates spiritual growth by evoking astral imagery into real world action.

The navamsha reveals traits, desires, hopes, dreams, fears, et-cetera. which are dormant but trying to rise into consciousness in your life.You find the partner who is already acting these out in the material world. You are intensely attracted to this person; they are everything you admire, everything you crave, everything you want to be. This person completes you; expresses you; forms your"other half".

Naturally, you marry them!

Examine each bhava in Navamsha from the appropriate partner lagna to know the level of your soul that is just now moving from subconscious to conscious. We usually need partners to bring out this new personality growth in us. (Even if that partner is the ishtadevata.)

  • navamsha 7th bhava represents first marriage spouse; navamsha lagna is you

  • navamsha 2nd bhava represents second marriage spouse; navamsha 8th bhava is you

  • navamsha 9th bhava represents third lifepartnership; navamsha 3rd bhava is you

Inherently problematic configurations in navamsha:

dusthamsha rulers in the first or seventh navamsha

  • graha which govern the 6th, 8th, or 12th bhava within the navamsha

  • to a lesser extent, graha which govern the 6th, 8th, or 12th bhava within the radix

  • graha in navamsha lagna which are unwelcome in the swabhava of sexual, dynamic, direct-action Mangala. In general this means obstacle-maker Shani, or Rahu in a rashi of Shani.

  • nichha graha in the first or seventh navamsha

upachaya lords (3, 6, 10, 11) in navamsha as well as in radix, will give better results with social and emotional maturity. E.g., Shani in

When D-1 spousal indicators contradict D-9 spousal profile:

Normally there is reasonable concurrence in the two perspectives given by D-1 and D-9.

However, when the navamsha and radix spousal indications are contradictory, there is usually to be found a public/private split in which things look on the outside (D-1) much different than they feel on the inside (d-9) in the marriage.

An important key to understanding the difference between public and private dimensions of marriage is to compare the character of the 1/7 axis in radix vs. navamsha.

D-1 vs D-9 indicators

D-1 outcome typically indicates the social-material filter * what is recognized by all users of the five-senses paradigm

D-9 typically indicates the astral-plane map, which contains the psycho-emotional precursor and antecedent of the material outcome. Some intuitive people can discern the emotional reality which precedes the material manifestation.

Shani-7 * dig-bala. Loyalty and steadfastness toward the marriage promise.

Shani randhresha-8 in Dhanushya-7 is said to be particularly excruciating with infidelities abundant yet the dignity (Shani) of married status will be upheld.

(The auspice of Shani's digbala in 7 can be cancelled by a kuja dosha from bhava-4 but i this nativity Kuja disturbs only 7th from Chandra and not the yuvati bhava itself.)

Marriage Karma (rules for action) seen in Navamsha

When reading the navamsha for spouse profile, keep in mind a peculiarity: 1st partner may be profiled from either 7th navamsha (most common) * or * 1st navamsha.

  • Initially, always try using 7th navamsha as lagna for the first spouse.

  • However, if the 7th really doesn't represent the spouse as you know them, be willing to read first spouse and all of their relationships - parents, children, previous spouses, et-cetera. - from the D-9 lagna.

  • DeFouw and Svoboda in Light on Relationships call this phenomenon the"80/20 rule".

  • Approx 80% of navamsha charts will read correctly for the spouse = 7th D-9.

Mesha navamsha lagna suggests that one expects to form a marriage which is a heroic sport, an athletic competition, an exchange of bodily dynamics and muscular strength, a burst of vital energy in new birth and new identity.

Mesha tends to physical-ize one 's behavior in marriage, focusing relationship expectations on exchange of animal-sexual instincts.

Understanding and expression of the marriage bond may be quite primitive, depending on the role of lord of D-9 in radix..

(Adjust for any graha in D-9 lagna.)


Expectation of the partner = Thula

Typically the life-partner is gracious, diplomatic, balancing and harmonizing. Mate is a deal-maker and negotiator.

Usually a pleasantly sensual arranger of people and things. Excellent placement for spouse = professional in matters of justice and equality under the law.

The partner may be a professional negotiator, broker, attorney, match-maker, architect, designer, or interior decorator.

Such a partner often wishes to live in a very gracious environment, in a diplomatic community, or in the company of deal-makers.

  • Bello Gallico 101-44 BCE Julius Caesar married three times between his age 17 and his death age 56. His first and most enduring marriage partner was Cornelia, known for her diplomacy and grace.

Expectation of the partner = Vrizchika

a fascinating, esoteric, penetrating, and often hidden personality due to Kuja-yuti-Ketu.

The partner should be mysteriously powerful, with access to confidential information and magical, transformative energy.

Secrecy is an important power for the spouse. It may be necessary to conduct the marriage in a veiled way, to prevent unwanted discovery.

The spouse may be skillful at re-inventing oneself (Vrischika).

This is a particularly sexual or tantrik placement = intensity of controlling behavior in the spouse.

The primary relationship may remain completely hidden from public view.

Alternatively, one may avail oneself of tantrik practices which transform the marital-sexual energies into more esoteric realms.

Mithuna tends to mental-ize one's behavior in marriage, focusing relationship expectations on exchange of information and ideas.

The general balance of the marriage or union =

  • one = messenger, missionary, envoy, apostle, evangelist, the primary communicator, writer and announcer, secretary , media-producer, administrator and event planner in the relationship.

  • The partner offers guidance and fatherly support, teaches wisdom, inspires others via sermons and lectures, and leads globalization activities.

Expectation of Dhanushya characteristics in the partner

One expects the partner to be a wise guide . The partner should be a religious or deeply philosophical person with strong convictions regarding the divine and matters of intuitive faith .

Public acts of faith, publicly stated Beliefs of the partner may be orthodox or otherwise according to the stature of Guru in one 's own radix.

one expects the partner to be a preacher, professor, a priest, a guru, a spiritual guide, a teacher of high religion .

  • Hour of Decision 1918- Rev. Billy Graham married the daughter of an international missionary. She had been raised in a community of articulating believers, and she continued to support broad philosophical and doctrinal discourse as an adult.

Mithunaya navamsha often remains unmarried because the primary life relationship = the Guru.

The partner should be a world traveler, a frequenter of temples, a ritualist * pujari, a philosopher, or a moral guide with patriarchal wisdom .

  • Such a partner often wishes to live in a university campus, in a multi-cultural environment, within a community of religious philosophers and world travelers.

Downside: the partner may be trapped in a ritualistic worldview, or substitute philosophy when pragmatic and timely action is required.

Karkata navamsha lagna suggests that the native intends to provide to the relationship a nurturing, parenting shelter, an exchange of caretaking.

Oneself is typically of a rather more home-based, culturally foundational, customary and rhythmic nature, preferring the sheltered stability of home to the exposure of public life.

Division of labor between the parents is most important to the success of the partnership; however the Karkata-navamsha native is often ready and willing to carry the heavier parenting duties so long as the mate will shoulder the responsibilities of public dignity and respect.

Karkata tends to parental-ize one 's behavior in marriage, focusing relationship expectations upon the exchange of protective supports.


(Adjust for any graha in D-9 lagna.)


Expectation of the partner = Makara

Division of labor between the partners = most important, particularly when the partners are parents.

Spouse may be a top-ranked corporate executive, a government officer or other institutional dignitary.

  • POTUS-42 My Life 1946- Bill Clinton married the career attorney, legal consultant, and POTUS-pair-42 + USA Secy State 1947- Hillary Clinton. Mrs. Clinton has enjoyed a lifelong career in public service holding numerous governance positions.

  • POTUS-31 Challenge to Liberty 1874-1964 Herbert Hoover married Lou Henry Hoover, a woman of considerable ability to handle responsibilities. She served as a national official of the Girl Scouts, was the leader of several corporations (privately owned by her family members) and was clearly the organizing force behind Hoover's publishing and investment career. Also see a robust Shani-Makara in Hoover's radical 7th-from-Chandra.

Suitable partner should demonstrate regular habits, discipline either internal or external (usually more external-social), orderly in behaviors and comportment, aware of the ranking systems of large pyramid-shaped hierarchies, status conscious, class-conscious.

  • El Castilo Interior 1515-1582 St. Teresa de Avila formed many partnerships with others in the monastic ranks of her era

  • Opus Dei 1902-1975 St. Josemaria Escriva formed most of his important partnerships trusts and agreements with other members of his institutional hierarchy

Typically the partner is elder in age. Partner enters the marriage with high rank or is focused on achieving a higher rank with lawful effort and over time.

  • Secret Doctrine 1831-1891 Helena Blavatsky married a military officer of high rank, decades her senior (Shani rules-7 radix and Shani rules-7 navamsha)

  • France-Emperor 1769-1821 Napoleon Bonaparte married Josephine, six years his elder and socially status-conscious.

  • Steppenwolf 1877-1962 anti-Nazi Hermann Hesse married Mia Bernoulli who was nine years his senior. Also Karkata radical lagna.

The spouse must be reliable, pragmatic, mature, have strong bones, stamina, and endurance. The partner should be able to direct a considerable size of social organization, if Shani in strong in the nativity.

Protestant Reformation 1483-1549 Martin Luther

Agreement to bask in the brilliant light of celebrity, gamesmanship, courtly fashion, creativity, genius

One with Simha navamsha lagna is the bright, self-focused center of the marriage. Simha generates a display of regal, political, theatrical, creative power; an exchange of celebrity.

The mate by contrast is more sober, more structural in perspective. Mate-1 tends to be skilled in economics, in social networking within large assemblies, with fundraising and participation in extensive, regulated systems.

Simha tends to glamor-ize one's behavior in marriage, focusing relationship expectations on exchange of entertainments.

Most of the public attention in the marriage is focused upon one oneself. Depending on characteristics of Shani, the partner is typically a hard worker focused on pragmatic material concerns, a skilled networker and an economic agent (Kumbha).

  • Protestant Reformation 1483-1549 Martin Luther married Katharine Bora, who bore him many children, maintained their farm and businesses, and hosted Martin's associates while they worked out the details of the religious-and-economic Christian Reformation. The attention was mainly upon Martin as the charismatic theological center; Katharine was however the key to his network of social connections which helped the Reform movement to gain support and grow.

A royal expression of joint celebrity and privilege.

one may believe oneself to be a very important person both within the marriage and in public. Marriage = political relationship. Costume, performance, and noblesse oblige are important.

Partnership is creative and dramatic, ideally it will be focused on channeling divine intelligence.

(Adjust for any graha in D-9 lagna.)


Expectation of the partner = Kumbha

One expects the partner to be a social networker , capable of organizing the vast interconnecting circles of association within one 's life.

Partner should be an elder, systematic scientific but likely rather eccentric personality who functions well in context of assemblies, congregations, with the masses.

Kumbha = co-ruled by both humble, conformist Shani and risk-runner Rahu.

The partner should have Kumbha characteristics of populism and neutrality, connected to the masses, and community oriented. It is fine if the partner = a somewhat common or working-class person or if from a distinctive background then perhaps a bit Rahu-ish, roguish, eccentric. Scientific in approach, and a competent functionary in large, distributive network environments but there should be a twist of taboo-breaking or unusual behavior.

  • Runaway Bride 1967- drama-commerce Julia Roberts married an 11-years-older eccentric musician who whilst a popular (kumbha) performer was not an entertainment-industry equal to her. The marriage was short-lived and focused mainly upon the celebrity of Ms. Roberts.

As a general balance, one has high entitlement to enjoy limelight attention and applause, while the partner (Kumbha) = a more background structuring force and imposer of order, who advances the couple's material goals and achievements while governing their social network.

Marriage view = Marriage is a mutual service agreement

Kanya navamsha lagna suggests that one expects to form a marriage in which ministries of service define the union. Marriage requires conflict management and engagement with problematicity which entails an apparently endless process of logical discussion.

One proposes an argument, files an accusation , generates an exchange of illnesses or complaints. Alternatively, at a higher level of consciousness, one may accept a ministry of service within the context of marriage as a purifying vocation.

Sustained analysis and practice of logical argumentation

Kanya navamsha lagna tends to create an environment of service in marriage, focusing relationship behavioral expectations on ministries of service, ongoing repetitive labor, employment and the workplace. The native is dedicated to one's work and one may feel that diligent service in the workplace will satisfy the mutual support requirements of marriage. When stressed, behavior in marriage potentially expresses as illness, toxicity, or the exchange of conflicts and accusations.

(Adjust for any graha in D-9 lagna.)

Consider also the possibility of matching between features of the nakshatra of the rising navamsha and certain characteristics of self or of spouse

  • Sophie's Choice 1949- drama Meryl Streep has Kanya-Chitra marking the D-9 lagna. She attracted a Chitra-style partner. Her husband Mr. Gumm = a noted sculptor. Chitra is governed by Tvastri Tvaster the architect craftsman.


Expectation of the partner = Meena

The mate is often intuitive, dreamlike, generous, charitable, and willing to help any and all as an ephemeral spirit guide. The mate may be capable of channeling clairsentient visions.

Private bedroom communion is very important in this relationship; public presentation or facade does not matter as much. The marriage partner = deeply intuitive but need not be sexual.

The spouse is often a sensitive or other-worldly person, such as an artist lost in the creative process, or clairvoyant reader performing spiritually guided divinations. Alternatively, the spouse may be a worldly person with a very broad theological or cosmic-scale perspective upon world affairs.

  • Sophie's Choice 1949- drama Meryl Streep has enjoyed a four-decade marriage to a quietly artistic sculptor whose gifts are developed in a sanctuary studio space

Such a partner often wishes to live in a secluded area, even in a monastery, or in a distant land.

Privacy and sanctuary are very important to the Meena Mate.

  • SoAfrica-Pres 1918-2013 Long Walk to Freedom Nelson Mandela married three times. His first wife was a highly private person who disliked politics and exposure, wishing to live in the seclusion of family and prayer according to her deeply religious worldview. His Chandra-2 confirms a partner who wishes to live in an undisclosed fashion.

Downside: Meena = dissolution of fleshly identity. Spouse may be overly involved in liquid methods of entering trance.

Balance-keeping, partnership-equalizing, negotiated, contractual agreement

Thula navamsha lagna suggests that one expects to form a marriage which is a balanced contract or legal agreement, an exchange of interests.

Thula tends to equal-ize one 's behavior in marriage, focusing relationship expectations on exchange of values.

In the event of divorce from such a marriage, one is prone to split assets equitably or to follow the justice protocol set by law.

Partner may be involved in the athletics business, in cutthroat competition, in races and contests to be first, in new ideas and new techniques, a fashion model, a dancer, a racer, a sports coach.

Such a partner often wishes to live near sporting venues, such as horse-racing or ski areas.

10th navamsha career = Simha * entertainment, royalty, celebrity, politics, gamesmanship

Vrizchika navamsha lagna suggests that in marriage one expects to encounter mysterious discoveries, or a tantrik hunt, an exchange of secrets. From the native's perspective, intimate relationships are designed to be deeply confidential, almost secret affairs between the two partners.

Vrizchika tends to confidential-ize one 's behavior in marriage, focusing relationship expectations on exchange of privileged knowledge.

one retains considerable psychological control in the union.

(Adjust for any graha in D-9 lagna.)

Professionally, Vrizchika on the D-9 lagna yields Simha 10th navamsha. Thus a natural indicator of political, royal, or entertainment celebrity professions.


Expectation of the partner = Vrishabham

The ideal partner = a material wealth -accumulator. The mate is naturally attracted to treasuries of value including historical knowledge, material wealth, herds of livestock, food stores, warehouse inventory, and accumulated worthy items which are conserved into collections of items of value.

Often the partner has lineage wealth, or a very lovely face, or musical-artistic talent.

  • POTUS-35 Profiles in Courage 1917-1963 John F. Kennedy 's wife Jackie Kennedy was born into a family of elite treasuries. Knowledgeable in Euro-American history, languages, and fine arts, Mrs. Kennedy managed a historic renovation of the Whitehouse with extensive cataloging of the hoards of art and valuable objects which are stored there.

  • Human Rights 1978- attorney Amal Alamuddin Clooney married Syriana 1961- drama-activist George Clooney . In addition to having been twice declared "Sexiest Man Alive" by a celebrity magazine, Mr. Clooney brought substantial financial treasury into the marriage.

  • Cleopatra 1932-2011 AIDS activist Elizabeth Taylor married eight times. Although her first marriage lasted only a few months, the young husband was a Zukra-ruled personality with luxurious financially privileged and sensual proclivities, both sexual and alcoholic.

The partner often has a lovely voice , teeth, mouth, and eyes. Mate is committed to caring for those beauties and other valued assets. Sensual pleasures of fine food and drinks, delicious tastes and sensual touch, are more important than public dignity.

The partner should be knowledgeable, especially re: art, languages and history.

One may tend to think of the partner = as an object of value, a collectable, rather than as a participating equal.

  • Such a partner often wishes to live on an estate in the countryside, among the grazing horses and cattle, surrounded by works of fine art.

Downside: the partner can become excessively acquisitive.

Doctrinal, ideological agreement

Dhanuzya navamsha-1 suggests that one expects to form a marriage which is a doctrinal agreement, a religious oath taken in context of orthodox teachings, or an exchange of philosophical wisdom.

Dhanusha tends to dogma-tize one 's behavior in marriage, focusing relationship expectations on exchange of ideologically principled vows. marriage. A doctrinal vow undertaken largely for the purpose of producing and teaching children and for missionary cooperation in spreading the understanding.

Alternatively the approach to marriage may be based in political or economic theory.

The native is called to priesthood in some fashion, and the mate is called to communications proliferation of the message.

In a husbandly nativity, marriage may be a vehicle toward becoming a guru-figure and entering fatherhood

In a wifely nativity, marriage purpose is embarkation upon the wisdom-teaching priesthood

  • Foursquare Evangelist 1890-1944 Aimee Semple McPherson was first married to a fellow preacher-missionary, then to a bookkeeper-clerk, then to a stage performer. According to her, the purpose underlying all of these unions was the singular service (Kanya) of preaching the Christian good-news gospel to the downtrodden (Kanya). However she recognized that there could be numerous means toward that end, including financial and theatrical skills.

(Adjust for any graha in D-9 lagna.)


Expectation of the partner = Mithuna

Ideally the partner = commercialist, administrator, a writer with secretarial skills, reporter, in the media-production business, concerned with meetings and plans, writing, films, journalism, publication, story-telling, communicative arts.

partner = a sexual twin, a narrative exchange, a literary conversationalist, mercurial wit, mentalist. There is often a mutual understanding of free interest to mingle with other partners.

Since Budha rules the 10th navamsha as well as the 7th, both partners may be successful writers.

  • Moneyball 1963- drama-commerce Brad Pitt and his first wife Friends 1969- drama-commerce Jennifer Aniston together developed a commercial film-production company. Her swamsha is also Dhanushya. Thus many years following their divorce, the two former spouses remain interactive in their jointly held business operations.

If the spouse is not a vibrant and mercurial communicator , much disappointment.

  • Such a partner often wishes to live in a city or a commercial area, where many mental diversions and communicative exchanges are available.

Mithuna suggests sexual multiplicity and several important communication partners. Karaka for multiple life partners.

Makara navamsha lagna suggests that one expects to form a marriage which is a sober responsibility, an exchange of leadership duties, an establishment of orderly process in society and in the home.

Makara tends to material-ize one 's behavior in marriage, focusing relationship expectations on exchange of socially approved duties. Division of labor between the parents is most important.

Generally, one wishes for the partner to provide a basis (4) in life, a foundation of emotional security and shelter.

Acts of public duty, designed to uphold the leadership reputation and ensure social dignity.

If this essential security can be established successfully (and that depends very much on the condition of Chandra in one's radix) then one is best suited to public work, managing hierarchical organizations in an regulatory fashion, imposing conditions of lawful order upon the populace, and directing groups while stationed at the pinnacle position.

  • POTUS-pair-35 editor 1929-1994 Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis was married to POTUS-35 Profiles in Courage 1917-1963 John F. Kennedy. Her radical Chandra-yuti-Rahu-3 rules the maha-dus-amsha-6, suggesting both a highly amplified and permissive (Rahu) marriage partner with fascinating (Rahu) media-messaging appeal (Chandra, comfortable familiarity) along with persistent conditions of disagreement or unfaithfulness to the vows (6)

If Chandra is well disposed, the division of labor can be smooth with the partner serving as stay-at-home parent and one secure to pursue a dignified career.

If Chandra is disabled, the relationship however well configured structurally (fine home, good parenting habits et-cetera.) it may collapse.

  • POTUS-45 Play to Win 1946- Donald Trump * nichha-Chandra-yuti-Ketu

(Adjust for any graha in D-9 lagna.)


Expectation of the partner = Karkata emotional security

The spouse is psychologically expected to be primarily a parent, caretaker, and a homemaker, with a great sense of care for the natural environment and the land. Partner may be a great patriot and roots-culture-activist but generally the patriotic feelings are strongest for the local area.

The spouse does not need a distinguished public profession but rather the skills of emotionally-responsive parenting are the most important contribution to the union from one 's point of view. Spouse may be a rhythmically habitual person and routine-oriented.

Spouse may be an environmentalist, a school-teacher, a nanny, a parent primarily, a lover of the land and the oceans, a gardener and caretaker, a steward and boater, manager of the homestead.

Such a partner often wishes to live in a tidal region or near the ocean waters. High security for the dwelling and surrounding properties will be needed.

As a general balance, one is a career professional with a strong orderly urge toward ascent of a hierarchy of rank and respect. The spouse prefers to remain at home and hearth. This is a comfortable public-private balance that supports a traditional family lifestyle quite effectively.

Community friendship and social-economic participation agreement.

Kumbha navamsha lagna suggests that one expects to form a marriage which resembles a partnership within the larger community, a primary friendship, an exchange of networks between two socially engaged personalities.

Kumbha tends to collective-ize one 's behavior in marriage, focusing relationship expectations on exchange of ideologies.

One important link within a larger network of associations.

(Adjust for any graha in D-9 lagna.)


Expectation of the partner = Simha

The partner should be a self-central person, confident and dramatic; ideally someone with political, theatrical, gambling, or entertainment skills.

  •  

However, if Shani influences Simha, then the persona of the mate is more conventional and less dramatic.

  • France-Pres 1890-1970 Memoires de Guerre Charles de Gaulle * Shani-Simha-12 * Madame de Gaulle was reputed for her simplicity and loyalty, and not her theatrical personality ... however she arranged and partook in all of the necessary entertainments throughout her husband's long political career, so she clearly had the skills to produce bright amusements (Simha).

Works well if Shani = strong in D-1.

The spouse is expected to be radiant, righteous, politicized and glamorous, in the bright lights of fame, seeking applause and obtaining admiration via expressions of creativity and performance arts intelligence.

Expectation of an attention-getting, visible, high-profile spouse with aristocratic behaviors and royal entitlements. Native expects the spouse to be at the center of one's life system.

  • Miracle Roses 1207-1231 St. Elizabeth of Hungary married Louis-IV Landgrave of Thuringia. Her navamsha Surya-yuti-Ketu in 2nd-from-7th points to her early widowhood (her age 20) due to her royal husband's death in medieval battle.

Spouse helps to call one into brighter visibility, promoting one 's recognition while one helps the couple to achieve their goals (Kumbha).

Such a partner often wishes to live in a hot, hilly region (Simha) or in a royal neighborhood where courtly entertainments are celebrated.

Downsides: solipsism and extreme self-focus of the spouse, to the extreme of inability to divert personal attention to the interests of one .

Meena navamsha lagna suggests that one expects to form a marriage which resembles a childlike dream, a sleepy sanctuary, an exchange of fantasies (Meena).

Meena tends to private-ize one 's behavior in marriage, focusing relationship expectations on exchange of imaginative awareness..

one is prone to dissolution, often returning to the otherworldly state in imagination or prayer.

dream, a fantasy, a private enclosure

one often wishes to live in a lake district, near a deep still lake, for water-gazing.

(Adjust for any graha in D-9 lagna.)


Expectation of the partner = Kanya

The partner is a servant to the marriage , compensating in practical daily manual skill for the dreamy qualities of the spiritually guiding native. By character, the partner is service-oriented and concerned for those in lower or marginalized roles. Concerned for servants, animals, the exploited, the less fortunate.

Works well if Budha = strong in D-1.

Partner likely to be be humble and exploitable by character, highly logical and argumentative in nature, clean and youthful with profound attitude of service and a bendable will. Partner often subject to ailments; nature of the imbalance-seeking-a-remedy depends upon Budha's role in radical nativity.

The partner may be exceptionally skillful at measuring, writing, calculations and composing litigation or accusations or formal arguments for a case. Spouse = co-writer or ghost writer for one 's books.

Spouse = physician, nurse, or a pharmacist, drug-seller, house-servant, restaurant or hotel worker, or agricultural worker. Kanya environments may support social worker or minister to the suffering or military officer. Mate may possibly be a relative on the mother's side. Spouse may be involved in any form of service occupation, but with a notable tendency to suffer from unfair contracts or to feel exploited.

Such a partner often wishes to live with the mother's relatives, in a servant's quarters, or in the workplace

Downside: life-partner may be exceptionally articulate in criticism and have a habit of blaming others.

Second marriage is partially characterized by 2nd navamsha or 8th navamsha.

  • Ring of Fire 1932-2003 rockabilly Johnny Cash was married for 15 years to his first wife, who served as a housewife, accountant, and caretaker of their children while her husband toured the land performing his increasingly popular music. The musical performance tours consumed his attention and kept him away from home (Ketu-4). His exceptionally strong uttama-atmakaraka-Zukra-yuti-Rahu finds mulatrikona for Zukra in his Thula-radical-12 and Thula 8th navamsha. Whilst on the road performing, Cash entered a passionate, covert (8) and ultimately legendary relationship (Zukra) with his fellow (also married, Rahu) singer June Carter Cash. The second marriage was not a Kanya service arrangement, but rather a Thula pairing of two artistic equals.

Links between native's D-1 and partner's D-9

Almost always there is a powerful connection between one 's D-1 planets and the spouse's D-9 planets - and of course, vice-versa. That is because the D-9 shows "recessive" traits-knowledge awareness which have been waiting for this particular person to mirror them to us as clearly as possible. When we find that person we feel whole.

All married people realize that getting along with the spouse requires being honest and getting along with one's self. We know we fell in love with them (or were otherwise bound to them) for a reason. That reason is that we are trying to become more like them, or at least to become maximally aware of their knowledge operating in our own space.

Dishonest marriages are painful affairs seething with anger and guilt, victimization and blaming. Honest marriages are exercises in developing consciousness. It seems terribly ironic but also is brutally logical to understand that in fact, in our next life, one becomes the spouse.

Just as the student becomes the teacher, so the husband becomes the wife and the wife becomes the husband. Our dormant traits will -- through that spouse's evocative role-modeling-- become manifest We will, oh yes, become exactly the opposite of the person we think we are, whom we have juxtaposed against this inscrutable Other. We will all become precisely those traits which we are SURE that we could never be!


To see spouse(s) in navamsha :

Look to the 1/7 axis in D-9 to profile the first spouse. traditional ly Jyotisha takes the sign on the 7th navamsha bhava and reads it as lagna for the first spouse.

  • E.g., to see the first spouse's values/wealth, consider the 2nd-from-7th in navamsha which is D-9's 8th bhava (and its lord) within the D-9.

  • To see the first spouse's mother, consider 4th-from-7th, or karma-bhava in the navamsha (and its ruler) within the D-9.


When reading the navamsha for spouse profile, keep in mind a peculiarity: 1st partner may be profiled from either 7th navamsha (most common) or 1st navamsha.

Try 7th navamsha for a first reading of spouse's character, but if 7th-navamsha really doesn't represent the spouse as you know them, be willing to read first spouse and all of their relationships - parents, children, previous spouses, et-cetera. - from the D-9 lagna.

  • Thus second spouse lagna would be the 8th navamsha, and second spouse's mother would be 4th-from-8th or the 12th navamsha. et-cetera.

If there have already been several marriagesyou can really test the profiles of previous spouses against the D-9 lagna vs. the D-9's 7th to see which is more accurate.

In fact, it may be that there is a correlation between folks who have multiple marriages and their navamshas, which must be read"spouse-wise"from the D-9 lagna rather than the D-9's 7th bhava.

If the birth time is correct and 7th-navamsha doesn't work, then reading from 1st navamsha will give truth.

In Light on Relationships, the respected Jyotishi-team deFouw and Svoboda discuss this D-9 lagna-as-spouse-lagna option.

The choice between using the navamsha lagnesha-1 or ruler of navamsha-7 as lagna for the first spouse is not a big problem, because all 12 rashi-signs are"yoked"into six yoga-pairs.

For example, Simha must be understood never in isolation but always as the"solar"half of the Simha-Kumbha polarity. (There is no king without commoners; there is no politics without privilege.) So it will be second nature for the experienced Jyotishi to check the ruler of the opposite sign anyway.


There is one Best method to find the core character of the spouse. This link represents the aspect of their reality which keeps you linked to him or her. This link when articulated can explain what one is trying to become (or un-become) in the marriage:

IMO, here is single most valuable technique for finding the point of matching energy which serves to attract the spouse. This matching energy maintains the work roster within the marriage until at least one of the parties has completed the transformation from ignorance into wisdom in regard to the contents of the link.

Want to see what you are working on and why?

  1. find ruler of bhava-7, planetary lord of radix seventh bhava

  2. locate ruler of bhava-7 in the navamsha.

  3. determine the lord of this navamsha sign

  4. study this planet carefully. Study its character, rashi influence, drishti by sign and bhava, everything about it. T his is the matching energy point.

  5. Your experience of the spouse is grounded in this point. If the navamsha lord of the ruler of radical bhava-7 = a genial, wise planet in radix, your marriage relationship will be delightful. The celibate religious often have exquisite marriage planets! However, if this graha is in a rough spot, so will be your spouse.

  6. The point is to take responsibility for the connection, the ongoing psychic tug-of-war with the Other. All those traits you have projected upon the spouse, are yours!


D-9 lagna and its lord: Basic Attitudes toward Marriage

When the lord of D-9 lagna, significator of one 's own behavior in marriage, falls into a dushthamsha * 6, 8, 12* , there are challenging implications for ease of marriage -- yet *success* of marriage is highly achievable with personal attention to behavior and intent.

  • 6 (Budha-ruled) = jealous and overtly warlike, with the likelihood of chronic animosity.

  • 8 (Kuja-ruled) = secretive and conniving, with the prospect of catastrophic upheaval.

  • 12 (Guru-ruled) = not conflicted but tends to become disconnected. The marriage energy gets dissolved by spiritual concerns.

When the lord of D-9 occupies radix lagna, one 's personality dominates the marriage. If the D-9 lord becomes strong and dominating, such as hot uttama or swakshetra graha, spousal concerns must take a back seat"to one 's personality development and the spouse must often"take it or leave it"having little power to negotiate for accommodation or change which might conflict with the direct interests of one's personality growth. Three-step process:


Navamsha and"Soulmate"

  • Look to the 7th navamsha for dominant pattern of expectations of the spouse. The partner whose Chandra matches one's 1-7 navamsha axis (or one's navamsha nodal axis) is that soul-mate, meant to be. Not easy - just properly matched!

By contrast, Authentic Marriage is one of the most difficult spiritual practices available. As Dr. Phil says,

  • Marriage is not a long date .

  • It's a partnership .

  • Partnerships involve give-and-take and sacrifice.

  • Men are really bad about understanding this."

If one's concept of"soulmate" can mature into the full expression of committed partnership, with all the ego-stress and material difficulty that long-term commitment enforces, then one will discover that the navamsha of one's own nativity gives a very accurate picture of one's "soulmate".


Finding Compatibility factors vs. making a prediction of Marriage

Q: Madam, Namaskar. Marriage is best as you have written in periods of Venus. While I would be running period of Mars-Venus from August-2010, my dream partner would be running Jupiter-Ketu. She will be running Jupiter-Venus from May-2011.

Does it imply waiting for that long for my dream partner to recognize that I am her destined mate? ....It is very exhausting simple waiting,...

A: Logically, there are only two conclusions available. Either this pair of nativities will not marry (which seems likely given the general lack of astrological affinity) or that they will marry but only during the period of overlap of mutual marriage periods. Regarding the two forthcoming Zukra periods, the range of overlap would be May-Oct 2011.

Keep in mind that this partner is your dream partner, upon whom you have projected many detailed desires for marriage partnership - however, there is no marriage currently being negotiated, nor even an active social relationship. I would recommend to redirect your Jyotisha analytical attentions to real-world relationships and events against which the principles of Jyotisha can be measured and tested. Jyotisha may give undesirable results when used on astral-plane relationships (those which exist only in the dream state).

In general, it only makes sense to engage in the detailed work of marriage prediction for couples who have an active love relationship and who are planning to be married - or for couples upon whose behalf an agent may be negotiating a marriage.

  • It does not make much sense to try to establish a mutual marriage date between two nativities that are not in a social relationship. To do so means investing a great deal of time into studying a relationship which cannot be tested or proven on the material plane. Without the test against real-world behaviors, Jyotisha is simply a parlor game. We need to test it against real people in real relationships to prove its validity.

  • In the classroom, it is good practice for students of Jyotisha to examine any two nativities for compatibility factors. But the mere ability to locate compatibility factors is not a basis for a prediction of marriage!

  • To properly learn the vidya in the modern age, it makes more sense to concentrate on one's own Vimshottari dasha timing and to evaluate one's own spouse profile. Then, examine the nativities of family members whose marriage dates are well known. Look at one's parents, siblings, cousins - note the Jyotisha factors that were present at the time of their marriage ceremonies.

  • Further, look to the karakas for the spousal profile. Evaluate your father's placement of Zukra, and see how his Zukra represents the qualities of his wife, your mother. Do the same thing for your mother, see her Guru position - all of Guru's characteristics, lordships from the Chandra lagna, role in navamsha, everything - and develop a wisdom about ways in which her Guru describes the man she married, whom you know so well as your Dad.

For women in your family who might have a second husband, examine their Shani. For men who might have acquired a second wife, look to graha in association with Zukra, including graha in the two rashi that are ruled by Zukra.

Studying the marriage patterns in many nativities will give you a much better sense of marriage unions and timing of the vow-speaking ceremonies which initiate the marriage commitment.

  • Looking too closely at one single potential partnership will not improve one's Jyotisha judgment and in fact may lead to Obsessive divinatory analysis.

  • (For example, a client who is obsessed with Communist Cuba-Dictator 1926-2016 Fidel Castro has asked 100 questions about Sr. Castro but does not care to look for similar patterns in other world leaders. This client always complains, don't tell me about Kennedy, don't tell me about Kruschev, I only want to know about Castro! But without the case studies, the Jyotisha principles can easily be appropriated by the mentally obsessive drive to profile and diagnose a single person. Then Jyotisha becomes psychologically invasive, and astrally manipulative; it becomes sorcery. And that is of course professionally and spiritually unsupportable.)

Let us avoid stretching the basic principles of Jyotisha to create predictions with no foundation in reality. Rather, let us focus intently on material reality, on known events and verifiable social relationships, and let us build up a database of proven nativities for which real events happened when Jyotisha did predict them to happen.

Then, when a similar pattern arises in one's own life, one can scientifically predict yes this matches my Jyotisha profile without damaging the analysis with anxiety, fantasy, future projection; psychological transference; or other non-scientific mental confusions.

Wishing you all the best in Jyotisha Studies,

Sincerely, B.P. Lama, Jyotisha
